Monday's Muse

Monday, September 13

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

This week's Muse is in honor of fellow blogger Cecile, from All I Want and More, who a few weeks ago knew the name of the model for Jaci Burton's hot cover for The Perfect Play.  The original photo that was used for the drool-worthy cover was our Muse, and I was in complete awe of her Muse knowledge when she filled us in on his name. This one's for you Cecile, in all your Smutty Hussiness :)  Maybe we should make this a recurring challenge.  I introduce a new Muse for the week, and Cecile can tell us all about him.  What do you all think?  Are you up for it Cecile?

There were a lot of new visitors to Seductive Musings over the weekend due to Blogfest.  While I know the majority of them stopped by just for the giveaway I hope many of you will find something that will keep you coming back for more :)  I attempted to do the Blogfest crawl...and "attempt" is the key word here.  I'd be interested to know how many people actually were able to visit all 258 blogs.  I tried, but by the time I got to the "T's" (was listed alphabetically) I couldn't do anymore.  The will was there, but my butt got tired :)  It was fun, and daunting all at the same time.  I always like to visit other blogs and websites not only to read what they have to say, but to also see what they do.  If you participated in Blogfest I'd be interested to know what new blogs you found that you will be visiting again, and what were some of the best giveaways your crossing your fingers in hope that you win.

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • There's a new Tempting Trailer for Eve Silver's Otherkin series.  I've not yet read any of this author's books yet, but the video has me interested.
  • I'll have some new reviews on some new, and not so new books in my attempts to catch up
  • I'll have the winners of the Sin Undone, Maya Banks & Blogfest giveaways...woo hoo!
  • I'm still seeking a few SM reviewers so if you think you have what it takes to be a Seductive Reviewer I'd love to hear from you.  You can find out more by reading the call for reviewers in the left sidebar.
  • Last but not least I finished the Reviews, Ratings & Review policy.  I shouldn't actually say "finished" because it still needs some functionality built into it, but it's at least a place to start.  I also added a quick Ratings Guide in the left sidebar for handy dandy reference when reading my reviews in case your interested.

Have a great Monday....or the best Monday possible even though it is still a Monday

    Goodness, he's something else. Wonder how long a day he has to work to keep that definition..?
    I've read Eve Silver in her "historical gothic" guise. Liked it...I've been vacillating on this series. It sounds good but then again, I'm close to burnout on paranormal.
    I visited all but 5 I think it was..there's some I follow now. They appealed (more than just the contest etc) but can't recall why right now..

    Jed Hill (beautiful man above) is also Pamela Clare's muse for her work-in-progress, Breaking Point. Her editor landed him for her cover as a surprise. Ain't that sweet? Mr. Hill is very popular nowadays.

    I only visited about 10-15 sites, and followed a few new ones that seem to have good author/review content. "Once Upon A Chapter" gave away Paperbackswap credits which I thought was a great idea, that is one of my favorite book exchanges.

    Thanks for that interesting tidbit. I'm sure fans of his will be anxiously awaiting his cover. I know I will be :) I still need to check out Pamela Clare. I hear such good things about her books that I know I need to get some of her books.

    I thought the paperback swap credits were a good idea too ;)

    Leave it to lovely Cecile to know who the cover model was, if anyone out there does she would be my go to gal indeed for the luscious eye candy on the front of any book that has any kind of "steam" between the pages!

    Blogfest crawl, not me.. I found about 5 places to my liking that were on my reader this Friday and Saturday to stop by and as already their follower and enjoy the posts and reviews cannot really say that found any "new to me blogs to share" !

    Smexy muse! Me likey!

    I managed to visit all 258 blogs, and it was quite a process. I visited a few on each of the three days and the tracking form was VERY useful! It definitely got tiring and a bit annoying how some blogs that were listed weren't even actually really part of BlogFest. I'm following a lot of new blogs and have exponentially increased my followers! Yay!

    Blogfest not my thing. Just stayed loyal to the ones I read and follows now.

    And thank you so vera, vera much for Mr. Jed. Hill. Oh yeah...

    I used the form too and did it over the 3 days. It was irritating that some listed weren't participating. I only added 5 to the blogs I follow. I read their reviews and roamed a bit. I liked their overall tone and they appealed to me. I wasn't going to follow one just for the giveaway. I'm not sure I'll ever do it again though...

    My FREE Kindle Quest

    I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
    Goal: $119
    Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
    If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
